Harry Styles is unafraid to carry a handbag, and is most known for his collection of Gucci’s Jackie and Bamboo arm candies – but there’s now a new bag on the block, judging by the singer’s recent return to London.
Harry has been pictured out and about in the UK ahead of the upcoming European leg of Love On Tourlooking casual and comfy in varying combinations of joggers, hoodies, and puffer jackets – but lately his bag of choice has always been the JW Anderson Bumper-17 leather shoulder bag, worn crossbody or slung over his shoulder.
The Bumper-17 is the slightly more daytime-appropriate sibling to the cult JW Anderson Bumper bag, which comes in plenty of shades from kooky to classic. Harry’s choice of black may be a little surprising due to his usually colorful stage persona – but his off-duty style is actually endearingly low-key. Here’s the proof:
In fact, JW Anderson’s Bumper bag was already a cult choice thanks to the likes of Emily Ratajkowski and Dua Lipa, who also covet the shoulder strap version of the bag.
Harry Styles is firmly linked with Gucci these days, though he has a long history with British label JW Anderson, too. Back in 2020, his colorful patchwork cardigan by the brand sparked one of the first-ever DIY viral fashion moment on the rapidly-growing TikTok, with thousands of fans trying to make their own versions of the knitwear. Then, of course, there was his statement striped jumpsuit by the Northern Irish designer, worn for a performance at the Today show in 2022.
Harry’s newest JW Anderson additionally costs $975 (though it is currently on sale), and is also available in a cute blue and lilac color-way that would no doubt look great on Mr. Styles – though the jury’s out on whether he’s building a collection of Bumpers like his Gucci go-tos.
